Latin Roots #52 - A Trippy Start To The New Year With Latin Psychedelia

For our first Latin Roots of the new year Catalina Maris Johnson, the host of Latin Beat in Chicago, is back to explore Latin Psychedelia.
Or, as she indicates it is sometimes less colorfully called, neo-tropical, jungle cumbia.
The music comes from Peru and elsewhere in South America and you may be surprised to hear she has some examples from back-in-the-day to go with some more contemporary ones.
A trippy segment! Check out her Spotify playlist for more.
